Bill Clinton made a plea yesterday for a new emphasis on monogamy as a key element in the battle against Aids.
The former US president, not noted for his ability to keep his own marriage vows, said it was very important to change people's attitudes to sex.
In an interview with the BBC recorded in Africa, Mr Clinton said that increasing support for monogamy was not just a problem for the continent worst hit by Aids but for the world.
"To pretend we can ever get hold of this without dealing with that the idea of unprotected sexual relations with unlimited numbers of partners I think would be naïve," he said.
Experts believe that the nature of Africans' relationships may help explain the continent's high rate of Aids. Research suggests a higher frequency of overlapping sexual partnerships.
Mr Clinton said the main challenge to fighting Aids in Africa was improving health services, not a lack of money.
"You can get the universal treatment the money's there now, if we spend it most effectively. But we don't have the health care systems."
“Ok...if that ain’t a case of the pot calling the kettle black!”
More of a case of the pot calling the pot a pot.
The fact that it's him, of all people, saying it means more people may hear it.
Does he actually say support for monogamy, because all I see there is him saying UNPROTECTED sex is the problem, i.e. solve the problem with contraception.
“To pretend we can ever get hold of this without dealing with that the idea of unprotected sexual relations with unlimited numbers of partners I think would be naïve,” he said.
Howz’ ‘bout unprotected sexual relations with your S-P-O-U-S-E, you sick ba$tard! He makes my skin crawl!
And by golly stop having sex with blue dresses!!!
Russia's invading Georgia, Mauritania is going Dictator, China's squashing protests in Tienamin Square again, Oil's down $4, and all Clinton can do is brag about changing the world's views on sex, generating more AIDs patients to vote Dem when they get to the USA! The world acknowledged Clown Prince rides again! Can't wait to hear him on Stage in Denver!!!!!
Do as I say, not as I do.
HO, HO, HO!!!!!!

This man has no grasp of the concept of irony. He is totally detached from reality.

Hypocrisy and the Voice of Experience. Billy Jeff has herpes.
Well there’s a new spin on “do as I say not as I do”
When did the correct spelling of this virus change from AIDS to Aids?
Ugh, one of the absolute most vile, repulsive, disgusting and dishonest “people” on the planet.
